Overview

Packed with action, romance and historical intrigue, Rurouni Kenshin is one of the most beloved and popular manga series worldwide. Set against the backdrop of the Meiji Restoration, it tells the saga of Himura Kenshin, once an assassin of ferocious power, now a humble rurouni, a wandering swordsman fighting to protect the honor of those in need.

A hundred and fifty years ago in Kyoto, amid the flames of revolution, there arose a warrior, an assassin of such ferocious power he was given the title Hitokiri: Manslayer. With his bloodstained blade, Hitokiri Battosai helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu period and end the reign of the shoguns, slashing open the way toward the progressive Meiji Era. Then he vanished, and with the flow of years became legend.

In the 11th year of Meiji, in the middle of Tokyo, the tale begins. Himura Kenshin, a humble rurouni, or wandering swordsman, comes to the aid of Kamiya Kaoru, a young woman struggling to defend her father's school of swordsmanship against attacks by the infamous Hitokiri Battosai. But neither Kenshin nor Battosai are quite what they seem...

I say that anybody interested in manga would read this series. I have 1-15 and will order 16 as soon as it comes out. They are an absolute KNOCKOUT!!

My friend got me hooked on Kenshin a while back, and at the sixth book I started to collect them for myself. This one contains probably one of my favourite pages out of the whole series; Hiko recaping all a list of Kenshin's emabarasing moments. 'Master, It's taken years to forget those things...' Aside from that, the plot advancement is really great.

In this volume, Kenshin Himura continues his training from his teacher Hiko Seijuro. Trying to find the hidden, most powerful attack of hiten mitsurugi! Amakakeru ryu no hirameki- Dragon flight of heaven!! while kenshin conqures the secret, Shisho and the juppongatana (ten swords) are plotting a great fire in kyoto! Overall, it was great. Watsuki is very talented! Its awesome and educational! Plus its hilarious. I recomend 12+ for the ages because its gets little violent and the use of swords. But i suggest checking it out.
